Watch and Write

Click on the link below and watch the video. Brainstorm the words or expressions that pop into your head when you watch the video.
For example, my students came up with expressions like "talented", "determination", "work hard", "be yourself", and "believe in ourselves". This will help you develop your paragraphs and you may finally come up with an interesting narrative or reflective essay.

To those who are going to sit for their SPM exam, I wish you the very best of luck!
I've always believed that learning is a life-long process. Do not only study for your exams...explore the world and try to get as much knowledge as you can.

Express Yourself! "Overcoming peer pressure: confession about real survivors"

Okay, so before, I have talked about peer pressure and all. Some of you might not believe me. I don’t blame anyone, but some people just don’t even get the slightest bullet from peer pressure.
But the ones who did must be in vain. I know how it felt, of course - I dealt with it most of the time.

Even though the peer pressure on me isn’t that bad, but guess what? There’s always worse.
What made me write about this is when Ms Maslinda gave the class a sheet of paper about adolescence. In the worksheet, there’s an opinion from a guy named Michael who believes that the biggest problem most teenagers face is peer pressure. He mentions how the victims of peer pressure are picked on when they wear different types of clothing or listen to different kinds of music.

When I read this, one name popped in my head: Bill Kaulitz.

He’s not that well known here in Malaysia, but he is one of the most well known artists in the whole wild world.

At a young age, Bill formed a band called Tokio Hotel (they are not Japanese, they are Germans!). And with the hit single “durch den monsun”, it happened as fast as lightning, they became big stars in France , Budapest , Arabia , Russia , America , Britain and more. The most amazing thing is that he will be only 20 years old this September. He even has a wax figure in Spain (the youngest to have a wax figure).

But behind all that success, he went through a tough teenage life. Why?

Because he looked like this when he was 15:

No, I don’t know how long it took to produce that hair, no, I don’t know how much gel he used and I’m not trying to tell you to look like him.

The story was, he was the only one who looked like this when he was still in school. He dyed his hair black (he was naturally blonde) , he painted his fingernails, he wore more make up than a girl, and he certainly was picked on, hard.

Not even his teachers could accept him looking like that (who could blame them? But the school rules were not strict, he didn’t break any school rules either.)

He said that he didn’t really care because he was ready to face all the consequences of dressing like that. He didn’t even blame anyone for disliking him because of his looks. He didn’t complain when people started to laugh at him, or run away from him. He said he was doing what he wanted and he accepted everything that he had gone through.

And I think that’s what the victims of peer pressure should do.

Accept and ignore.

You are stronger when you stand on your own two feet. You can prove that you are not weak. You can prove that it is not you who have problems, it’s them.

Discrimination is harsh in every aspect, but as I said before, be proud to be you. You are original, you are you. And no one can take that away from you.

Right now, I know some of you might have hesitated. Bill does look like the culprit of peer pressure right?

Well, as they said, don’t judge a book by its cover.

I’m very sure he’s not a culprit.

Why? Because this is his elder IDENTICAL twin brother, Tom Kaulitz :

Yes, total opposite!

It is his twin brother, trust me.

They look totally different, that’s obvious.

But Tom has always been Bill’s best friend. They’re inseparable. Yet, they look so different, even today. That’s another example I want to point out.

Accepting others. Bill accepts his brother for who he is. They have the strongest bond any siblings should have. They faced the world together; they survived peer pressure without a scratch. I think that’s very admirable.

Just like Susan Boyle, people thought the band would never make it because they started with insufficient instruments, an image that’s hard to be accepted, and yes, Bill’s voice before he hit puberty sounded nothing like a boy. They even had gigs with only five people to entertain! But they never gave up.

Look how far they’ve come now. They are still very young, (the eldest band member is only 22 years old) yet, they are still more successful than most bands in this stage.

You might think that they can cope with peer pressure because they might not have family problems; their parents give them sufficient love...well, no.

When Bill and Tom were seven years old, their parents separated. They said they couldn’t accept it at first, but they learned. They wanted their mother to be happy. They didn’t pick the rotten apple, the picked the red one. I think that’s why they are so strong in handling life. They don’t ‘use’ bad experiences as a reason or excuse to be depressed, easily influenced, or fragile. They use it as a shield to live life happily.

Even though Bill looks like a rebel in distress, don’t get fooled. He is a cheerful boy. So cheerful, you can’t believe the real him!

I repeat, I’m not saying you have to be exactly like Bill (his style), I’m just saying he’s an inspiration as a person who dealt with peer pressure well.

Never let anything let you down. Is it worth wasting a second in life being sad?

Think about it.:)

Express Yourself! "Science is Fun!"

Hello readers..!!

Do you know anything about science? Where does science come from? Is science important to us? Does it give any benefit? What is the interesting thing in science that can attract us to know more about science? What happens to those who don't learn science?

These are the questions that we can ask about science. Well, as we know, scientific theories were discovered by many scientists around the world, such as Newton, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and so on. For me, science is like magic. There are many things that we don't expect to happen are actually happening. That’s why I said that science is a very fun subject to learn.

Secondly, science is a very fun subject to learn because it gives us skills to memorize many specific terms, for example in biology, we can memorize specific terms such as peristalsis, hydrolysis, and so on. In biology also, we can try to do many experiments that involve animals such as frogs and rats.

In these experiments, we can operate the animals and make observations. Through these observations, we can imagine how our body system works.

But what about chemistry? Isn’t chemistry fun? Well, chemistry is also fun when we try to learn about it. There are many things we can learn about chemistry especially about solutions. In chemistry we can learn whether the solution is acidic, alkaline or neutral. We also can know about the solution that is dangerous which can corrode our hands. But somehow, still there are pupils who don't believe about the solution that can corrode our hands. Well, experiments are also carried out in chemistry. One of the experiments that we can make is a double composition experiment. This experiment tells us about the mixing of solution: when we mix two solutions, two things are produced: soluble salt and insoluble salt. Well, before this, have we given a thought about it? That is the reason why we must learn science.

Physics is also one of the interesting science subjects. Do you know who found physics theory? The first man that discovers the Physics Theory is Albert Einstein. This man is the father of physics. There are many theories of physics that we can learn. One of the physics theories is metaphysics. Well, physics is closely related to our life. Even though we just make a little experiment in physics we can see the concept of Physics realised in front of our own eyes. One of the physics concepts that we can see is when we see when a car driver uses the emergency break, the passengers will move forward. This demonstrates the concept of Inertia.

In conclusion, there are many interesting things that we will know when we learn science.
I hope all the information given will give many benefits to all the readers. Thank you.

Change the SPM Exam Grading System

This is an extract of a view by PRACTISING EDUCATOR, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, which was published in The Star on 3 June 2009.

EACH year we hear and read about issues and problems regarding the award of PSD scholarships to bright and deserving students.
The plight of many straight A1s students who were not successful are highlighted in the newspapers, much to the chagrin of public.

Political parties have fought to champion the rights of these students. Discussions and debates have been going on on how to select the best students fairly based on the limited financial resources the Government has in hand.

This whole issue is indeed being caught in a vicious cycle year after year, increasing public anger. I would like to put forward a very simple solution to this issue – transparency.

As a practicing educator, I know for a fact that the A1 can range from 60 to 100 marks, and that’s the reason many students find it so easy to score all A1s. During my time, if you got 5 As out of 9 subjects, you were considered exceptionally bright and you would find there were extremely few students scoring straight 9 As.

So are we saying that students nowadays are much brighter than students of yesteryears? Absolutely not. Teachers nowadays are very surprised that students who get 60 to 65 marks in a subject during the trial examination may end up getting an A1 in the SPM.

I would strongly recommend that the Education Ministry revamps the grading system of public examinations by reverting to absolute scores.

This has been implemented in many examinations overseas, such as GCSE, Australian Matriculation, ACCA, the Edexcel A-Levels, etc.

Release the absolute scores of each subject for every student in the public examinations as is done for the trial examinations in the schools.

Comment: I couldn't agree more with PRACTISING EDUCATOR!!

10-subject limit for SPM from next year

This is an extract from The Star, Friday 29 May 2009

10-subject limit for SPM from next year

NILAI: From next year, students sitting for the SPM examinations will only be allowed to sit for a maximum of 10 subjects.
The grading system for the examination will also be improved to better reflect the academic achievements of the students.
Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the ministry decided to do away with the open certificate system, which allows students to sit for as many subjects, as the majority only took 10 subjects or fewer.
“Records show that some 90% of students sitting for the SPM exam take 10 or fewer subjects,” the Deputy Prime Minister told reporters yesterday after laying the foundation stone for the new RM1.3bil Education Complex at Bandar Enstek near here.
“We want to streamline this as it will also be an easier way to determine the awarding of scholarships.”
Some 450,000 students sat for the SPM exam last year.
Muhyiddin said teachers would also be able to focus better if students were only allowed to take up to 10 subjects because they would not be burdened with teaching other subjects.
“Parents also will not have to rush their children for too many tuition classes.”
On the grading system, Muhyiddin said instead of giving students 1A, B or C, their grades would include A+, A and A- from next year to make it more effective in deciding who was most qualified for a scholarship.

Do you agree with the 10-subject limit and the new grading system?

Something to Ponder: It’s not string of A’s that counts

This is an extract from The Star, Saturday 23 May 2009.

It’s not string of A’s that counts
Foreign universities prefer those who excelled in extra-curricular activities

PETALING JAYA: Foreign universities are looking beyond a string of A’s in SPM as they prefer all-rounders who also excelled in extra-curricular activities.
British Council education director Peter Clack said some British universities were “put off” by the number of A’s which Malaysian students boasted about.
He welcomed the Government’s move to limit the number of subjects students could take in SPM. “It’s quite worrying to see that the academic side is seen as more important than the mental and emotional sides of education. Hence, parents put a lot of emphasis on the exam results. This should be discouraged in any way possible.”
Jerry Tan, general manager of education advisory body Studylink Sdn Bhd, agreed with Clack. “Foreign universities are skeptical about the number of A’s which Malaysian students are achieving. The admission depends a lot on interviews,” he said. He said the universities would offer scholarships to students with 10A’s if they were all-rounders. Tan hoped the Government would end the open certificate practice as local colleges were raising the bar in offering scholarships.
Coordinator of the Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (Educational Advising Centre) Doreen John said US universities looked for all-rounders rather than just excellent SPM results. “Were they head prefects before? Did they do something for the community?” she asked.
Generally, US universities require students to sit for entrance examinations after SPM, such as the SAT Reasoning Test, while British and Australian universities require students to complete a foundation course before commencing a degree program.
Note: I wish all policy makers, educators, parents and students in Malaysia read this...

Express Yourself! "Happy Teachers' Day!"

Happy Teachers' Day to all teachers at my beloved SMKKK 1, especially the teachers who taught me..=)

Wonderful Teacher

With a special gift for learning
And with a heart that deeply cares,
You add a lot of love
To everything you share,
And even though
You mean a lot,
You'll never know how much,
For you helped
To change the world
Through every life you touched.
You sparked the creativity
In the students whom you taught,
And helped them strive for goals
That could not be bought,
You are such a special teacher
That no words can truly tell
However much you're valued
For the work you do so well.

Express Yourself! "To the Honoured Teachers"

The one word that describes an educator,
Responsible for every teaching,
Always patient when there is an obstacle,
Determined to educate us children,
Always relate with reality,
Caring and supportive,
Sometimes she can be strict,
But fair at the same time,
There is always happy and joy,
Not only that you are fun,
But also energetic and lively.

You are my mentor,
You made me realize
That the world could not change itself,
But with your help and mine,
We may achieve that goal.

You are also beautiful
Not only on the outside,
But also on the inside,
Because you possess those features,
The features which makes you a GREAT teacher.

Express Yourself! "Dream"

Dream, a word that everyone holds in their hands. A word which guides us on the right track towards a brighter future and a magical word of motivation.We use the word 'dream' to keep us encouraged yet we do not have the right criteria to actually grasp that word. Dream is often linked with our ambitions, objectives, visions and missions. To achieve it,we must have these criteria which are determined, inspiring, self-confidence and self-belief.

Our dream should be inspiring so that it can act as a ladder for us to climb onwards, not the other way around. We must choose the right dream so that it will complement us. If we chose the wrong one, the 'dream' can turn into 'nightmare' for us because it degrades us into something more pitiful. In the end, a good dream can be an inspiration to us.

Dream needs to be accompanied by our determination to actually achieve it. If we are not determined, we just let everything pass like that, it would not help us at all. For instance, if we fall down in the lowest ranking in our class, we should stand up like a hero/heroine and fight through all the 'gate guardians', who are our friends in the class. By doing so, our dream will shine brighter for us and we are one step closer to our dream. It is never late to try like Susan Boyle from Britain's Got Talent 2009. The main point is determination determines our dream.

Besides that, we also need the one I mentioned above that is self-confidence. Whoever does not have one should try and search for it - it never runs from us. Self-confidence is always waiting for us which is inside ourselves. If we have self-confidence like Susan Boyle, we can leap the precipice no matter how high it is. Susan was mocked by one of the judges and most of the audiences's expressions meant this,"Hey,what is an old 40's woman doing on the stage!?". Then, Susan proved them wrong by having their knees weak with her angelic voice! So, we too must have self-confidence in order to succeed our dreams.

If we have all the criteria above, then it means that we are safe but what about our dreams? Let us say that a fisherman's daughter wants to be an engineer, she will certainly be laughed by others but do not judge a book by its cover. She might prove them all wrong about poors having huge dreams. We must be strict with ourselves, do not let others influence us by shaking our ladders to our dreams. Stay firm and we will soon reach our dream and they will know that an 'old book' has an infinite knowledge in it. We must show them that they are 0% true. We must live by the principle of 'do not judge a book by its cover'.

In conclusion, we must have the criteria mentioned above in order to succeed in life. There is no stop for us until we reach our dreams till death do us apart with our dreams. Everyone has their own dreams,stay with it and work hard to achieve it.

Teacher's Message: Against all odds

Click on the link below and watch the video:

What have you learnt from this lady named Susan Boyle? You can write a descriptive essay about her or perhaps a reflective essay entitled “Dream”. The following words/expressions might help you in your writing: determined, inspiring, self-confidence, self-belief, be yourself, don’t judge the book by its cover. Good luck!

Teacher's Message: Fun Oral English Test

Who says Oral English Test is a boring and gruelling experience? It encourages creativity and can be fun both to the students and examiner. . . I had a great time watching a variety of shows in Form 5 Bestari: Malaysian Idol, live interview with 2 astronauts on the International Space Station (complete with space suits!), interviews with sportsmen, environmentalists, etc. Well done, guys!

Express Yourself! “English is fun!”

Hello there! I'm here to talk about the English subject which can be boring sometimes to others. Some said English is so-so but I'm here to state that English is neither both of those statements. They said that maybe because they have a hard time getting an A or at least good results in English. I will try my best to help you, my dear friends! Here are some tips and my personal secrets! Be grateful, haha, not really...

'English Is Fun', quite a popular tagline isn't it? Well course it is! Nobody can deny that English is a bit relaxing than other subjects. You only need to master sentence building which is quite easy. You need a [SUBJECT+PREDICATE], as simple as that. But we don't want something to be THAT simple. At least add something to the sentence like adverbs or adjectives, I don't actually know in a proper way. English is easy once you learn that simple technique, it's just like Bahasa Melayu except that it's in another language.

I can positively say that each one of us listens to music especially English. Now, this truly defines English is fun. Listen carefully to the lyrics, you will never regret it. The lyrics of songs have many 'bombastic' words, once in a while you will surely find one. Besides enjoying the music, you can learn English as well but beware as lyrics tend to be broken in sentence structure! That's one of my secrets.

Okay, in writing an essay, just use everything you got but make sure you use simple words and a complete sentence. After a few paragraphs, try inserting one or two bizarre words in between your sentences just to get merit points. Here's my tip, it's a bit risky but if you feel confident, heck just use it. I always read back what I wrote on the paper after finishing a sentence or two or maybe a paragraph. If the sentences sound funny then there must be something wrong with them. This is when it becomes risky; we consume time when we check for spelling mistakes and sentences. Dare or not? It's all up to you!

Have you played any games in any platform? Well, I have a PS2 but it has been a long time since I touched it, it's all dusty and all. I'm busy with my study now, ahhh, memorizing something that we must keep firm in our mind. Anyway, for all gamers, in what language do you play with? No doubt it's English; this makes me what I am today. The wordings in games are often written in a complete sentence. My English has improved, thanks to many kinds of games I played when I was a kid. I don't know if it is too late to start but if you don't have time to play games, at least read magazines or comics in English. Oh, an English drama also helps!

I think that is all for now, I have other business to attend to, homework! Assalamualaikum & have a good day...

Express Yourself! "Stress and Studying"

Studying for finals and midterms tends to be automatically linked with stress. In fact, where stress is already built into a situation where you need to call up all the important information that you’ve learned in each of several classes over the course of several months, the last thing students need to do is add to the stress of midterms and finals, right? Well, unfortunately, many students inadvertently do just that. Certain common practices that often make finals even more stressful than they need to be. Do any of these sound familiar?

Pulling “All-Nighters”

Many students especially those who work best with deadlines find themselves staying up all night studying. Going through the next day exhausted, many may wonder if it’s worth it do the benefits of an all-night study session outweigh the sleepiness and fuzzy thinking that generally characterize the next day? Recent research says ‘no.’ A study set to be published in the January issue of Behavioural Sleep Medicine found that students who regularly pulled all-nighters tended to have lower GPAs than those who didn’t. The study also found that most students didn’t stay up all night studying because they had to. They did it because it was ‘kind of fun,’ or a rite of passage. This is good news because it means that most students, armed with the understanding that all-nighters aren’t associated with higher grades, can stop.

Express Yourself! "Peer Pressure"


Peer pressure. When you hear it, you might go “oh no, not this topic again.” Well, at least that’s what I thought when I picked this topic out of the bunch. But I’m not talking about the same thing that you might have listened or heard about. So, peer pressure : are you the victim or the culprit~??

Let’s start from the question : what is peer pressure? In the simplest term, it is an influence on a person by other people who are about the same age. Teenagers especially.

If you are used to be bossed around, or are afraid of being alone, not confident of yourself, then, let me tell you this: you got problems. And you have to fix that because this will allow you’ve to be influenced easily. Thus, you are prone to be peer pressured and people will look at you as a toy, the puppet that everyone can play with. You will lose your dignity. Not only that, if you are drown in the darkness of peer pressure , you can lose yourself and you might never be able to get back to the surface ever. You won’t realize such loss but it is the biggest loss you will get. So please take it seriously and take care of your dignity seriously. Think about your family, your mother and father that gave up a lot for you to be a good person, protect your family’s name. If it wasn’t for anyone else, then, do it for yourself.

If you are a leader of a clique, or if your friends follow your orders without any complaint, and especially if you are the person who doesn’t like different people and wants your friends to be like you, then, watch out! Because you might be the one who put peer pressure on people.

Some might know that already. But some just don’t seem to realize that you are messing with someone’s head. You have to realize that it is selfish to force people to be someone they are not. If you can’t accept someone who they really are, then , don’t expect that person to like you either. Would you like it if people want you to be like them? Especially something you are against of ? I don’t think so. However, at the same time you can be yourself without patronizing people. You will find someone who can accept who you really are and you have to accept people for who they really are too. Be cooperative. And don’t be a hypocrite. If you know that no one wants to be friends with you just because you are different, then you don’t need friends. You have to be confident. You have to be proud that you are different. You are original. You are you. And no one can take that away from you. But at the same time, don’t blame people for not accepting you. Unless your differences are inappropriate, maybe it is the way you talk, you might be too sarcastic or heartless. Or maybe you just talk too much. And those are the things that you shouldn’t be proud of. So look into yourself and try to change, for the better only. As a Wiseman said once: do goodness for goodness sake.

You have to know that, if you are weak, and easily influenced, there is not much you can do in your life. You would trust people too easily and people can fool you a lot of time. People won’t have respect for you, people will look down on you. People will even ignore you. Whether or not you are peer pressured, you will feel some sort of emptiness in you because you can’t be who you are and in some cases, suicide is committed. This is dangerous and you should really open your eyes and see, able to differentiate between right and wrong.

You also have to know that, if you are too strong, too demanding, too hardheaded, you can ruin your and someone else’s life. You have to know what you are doing. You have to think about the consequences afterwards. If you know one person’s policy or motto don’t take that away from them, especially if it were the right ones. You have to be considerate and you have to think about others too. You cant just walk in someone life and expose outrageous information to them in order for them to change. That is so rude and selfish. And don’t expect people to be just like you so don’t blame people when they mock you one day. Blame yourself for what you did. That is why you have to think before you act. Don’t look so high on yourself. Don’t be too arrogant just because you might have more advantages than others. You are making a fool of yourself.

What I’m trying to say is, peer pressure, either you are the victim or culprit , it is no good for both sides. So change while you still can.
